Historical Lovecraft: Anthology of Scary Short Stories
Historical Lovecraft: Tales of Horror Through Times presents mystery, horror, and scary short stories by historical fiction writers. This book compiles 26 tales spanning centuries and continents. Although their short stories are not the true history, the background and some characters in their Lovecraftian stories have ever existed in real history. H.P. Lovecraft put myth, horror, and mystery in his story and so do the lovecraftian writers who follow his style.
Horror fictions are scary fantasy stories. We call them fantasy because one or more characters or elements of the stories are not realistic. The power of supernatural or mythical beings shows that Lovecraftian fictions are fantasy stories.
Unexpected ending and temporary survival of main characters are the characteristics of Lovecraftian stories.
Even if it Historical Lovecraft: Tales of Horror Through Times is not written by H.P. Lovecraft, it is good and unique book which can bring you into scary and mystery fantasies. This book put Lovecraft story out of the box and set the stories in Africa, Europe, China, Latin America, South East Asia, and Middle East, where the characters from different cultures face supernatural and mysterious terrors. It is a book of stories of good and evil, magic and reality from the dawn of time to now.
Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Editor) and Paula R. Stiles (Editor) has compiled and edited the stories in this book, published by Innsmouth Free Press.
